Arsenal announce Vietnam friendly

Arsenal will play a pre-season friendly in Vietnam this July, becoming the first Premier League club to do so, the club have confirmed.

The match will be played in the 40,000 capacity My Dinh National Stadium in Hanoi, and is the result of negotiations between the Arsenal board and Vietnam Football Federation back in March.

Gunners’ Chief Executive Ivan Gazidis said: “Arsenal has so many loyal supporters in Asia and we are delighted to be visiting Vietnam in July to play a match in Hanoi.

“Everyone at Arsenal is proud to be the first Premier League team to play a match in Vietnam and to be spending time in this wonderful country.

“Arsene Wenger, the players and all the staff have hugely enjoyed our tours to Asia in the past two years, and we are all looking forward to visiting Vietnam as part of our Asia Tour 2013.”

The match will be played on Wednesday July 17th.

Arsenal will also play in various other countries as part of their Asia Tour 2013 – They are due to travel to Indonesia to face an Indonesia XI, and on to Japan, where they play Nagoya Grampus, and Urawa Reds.
